La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich: The Imaginary Yacht Club by the Lake
La Réserve and the vision of excellence upheld by its owner Michel Reybier, the Eden au Lac property is reinventing itself as La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich, a new 5-star establishment in Zurich. The hotel has been completely redesigned to provide an elegant and timeless experience in the heart of an imaginary yacht club dreamed up by Philippe Starck. The French creator conceived the renovation to be minimal yet not minimalist, releasing the light and maximizing the architectural volumes. The hotel is filled with sophisticated and carefully curated objects and materials that give a unique poetry and charm to the place.
For the hotel's bathrooms, La Réserve Eden au Lac and Philippe Starck worked with AXOR collections, including AXOR Starck for the wash basin, bathtub and shower, and AXOR Starck Organic for accessories. Two AXOR Starck collections inspired by nature that focus on the beauty and magic of water. Elegantly combined with the AXOR Citterio collection, a subtle mix of right angles, flat surfaces and refined curves, the results are timeless yet creative. Many of the products are finished in Brushed Chrome, one of fifteen exclusive AXOR Finish Plus surfaces.
“My work with AXOR has always only been about water, its magic and beauty. At La Réserve Eden au Lac Zurich, the lake is an omnipresent attraction that I wanted to keep visible everywhere at all times. It is only natural that these two projects came together, as there is nothing more connecting, more human than water. Water is life.” Philippe Starck.
